Gist Console Creator

This page helps you create a URL for a Gist Console on PythonAnywhere.

A Gist Console is a fully interactive in-browser console window, which starts up by running the contents of a Gist on GitHub (Python only for now), then lets the person viewing it type in and run code of their own.

This can be really useful if you're explaining some code to someone — instead of just giving them a link to a gist with the code, you can give them a link to a copy of the running code that they can play with!

To create your own Gist Console link, enter the URL of a Gist on GitHub below.
